Episode 4 — Gerrymander Never Knew What Hit It: Ben Geffen Saves America

SLAY THE GERRYMANDER PODCAST: OK, we exaggerate a little. But Ben Geffen was a key player on the legal team that won the first court case overturning for good a notorious 2011 gerrymander. Geffen’s tale takes you behind closed doors to learn how a band of determined citizens and public-interest lawyers stunned political insiders. They used a novel legal theory to convince the Pennsylvania Supreme Court to toss out the state’s notorious, “Donald Duck kicks Goofy” congressional map.  The new map put in its place then fueled the “blue wave” of the 2018 mid-terms.
